Gaddafi wants more of Juventus

Al-Saadi Gaddafi wants to buy a bigger stake in Juventus
Al-Saadi Gaddafi, son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, wants to buy a bigger stake in scandal-hit Italian club Juventus.

Al-Saadi, who has had spells in Italy as a player with Perugia and Udinese, currently owns 7.5 percent of Juventus through his Libyan Arab Foreign Investment Company.

"It is our intention to make a big investment," Al-Saadi told the Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

"We would like to be the biggest shareholders after the Agnelli family. Naturally, they remain the historic pillar of Juventus. We are looking at being the Agnellis' main partner.

"At the moment we haven't gone into detail, but it is our firm intention to raise our quota in the club. I still don't know when we will have something concrete."

Juventus were relegated to Italy's second division and made to start on minus 17 points for their part in the country's match-fixing scandal.

Al-Saadi revealed he is considering an offer to train with Serie A club Sampdoria.

"I will speak to my father about it before making a decision," he said.

"I have to see if it would get in the way of my work commitments. But I like the offer made by (Sampdoria president) Riccardo Garrone."
